Our 2022 Unboxing Survey is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey, you can view the 2022 Unboxing Survey results here!

At Macfarlane Packaging we’re on a mission to ensure your online shopping ends with a great unboxing experience.

Every year conduct a survey to understand the standard of the packaging that’s used to ship your online shopping. Do the packaging materials retailers use meet your expectations? Do you enjoy unpacking newly purchased items in nicely branded packaging? Or do you find you’re often frustrated as you struggle to open a package?

With more and more people turning to online shopping, it puts retailers under pressure to meet demands. What do you expect from packaging? Do you want eco-friendly packaging during your unboxing experience? Would the packaging a retailer use impact your shopping choices?

Take part in our 7th annual unboxing survey to help us understand retailer trends and ensure that all your online purchases arrive in packaging that is easy to open, easy to return and eco-friendly!

If you have a question about the survey or prize draw, please email [email protected]
